I feel like that woman in Eat Pray Love. I’m restless.This year needs to be about finding my balance in writing and just being sure I know where I stand with those little pesky commas, semi-colons, and heck the whole infrastructure of my writing! I feel like it has been raining doubt for weeks with no sunshine. I need a peep hole (I got a glimpse from Lee and Low books the other day and I feel so close, I just might be a breath away) so I can peek through and see the sandy beaches (yeah the ones with the crystal clear water, the one’s mermaids just might inhabit), those far away places that seem so fun and magical from a distance if we would only get on a boat, ship, or airplane and just take the leap and explore them.
This year I’m an explorer. I’m a traveler. I’m Don Quixote, circa first expedition only. I’m Columbus…Amerigo Vespucci. I’m Ten Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and swimming for the surface. I’ve been cooking like crazy and loving it. Now that I’ve been so sincere I’m not afraid to say that I believe Don Juan has entered our bedroom several times this month, oh wait that would be my loving husband. TMI I know, but I can’t let you get away with thinking I haven’t got the “love” part covered. I’ve been a character all to herself. In my own world. Let an awakening begin.
My blog will drown a little bit…okay a lot, but all in the name of discovery and preservation (not just for my writing). Before I head out though. I promised I’d let you know who the winner from December’s challenge is…..
